18 Viral Beauty Gifts From TikTok That Are Worth the Hype
TikTok has blessed us endlessly. We have the app to thank for bringing beer and honey hair masks to the masses, Emily Mariko's salmon-bowl recipe that's shockingly easy yet delicious, viral bun hacks to copy that off-duty supermodel look that's everywhere, and endless beauty product suggestions.
Every time you open TikTok, you can find a beauty-lover recommending a new obsession-worthy product. Most times, we've also tried it out and can weigh in on whether it's worth the hype (and if we haven't, you can find us running to the nearest Ulta or Sephora to snag it for ourselves). That's why it only makes sense that we look to the video-sharing app for all of the best beauty gift recommendations this year. From viral hot tools to makeup dupes and affordable skin-care saviors, TikTok is bursting with beauty gift ideas for every person on your list.
In need of something small and cute, like a stocking stuffer? Look no further than the bestselling Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Blush or the luxe Dior Glow Lip Oil. Shopping for the skin-care enthusiast? There are plenty of skin-care sets they'll love to use from brands like Laniege, Glow Recipe, and even CeraVe. We even found a few hair must haves that will give them salon-quality results at home.
You'll find more of the best beauty gift ideas from TikTok ahead. (Just don't forget to scoop up a thing or two for yourself.)
